kind words from past couples

“Amanda is friendly, professional, and made us feel comfortable instantly. She collaborated with us to create the perfect vision for our elopement day. When we got the photos, my husband said, “She made us look like models!” She really did. We were able to buy printed photos from Amanda’s website for great prices, too. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!”

-Rachel // Elopement

“I’m looking at our wedding photos and feeling like I am reliving the happiest day of my life! Thank you Amanda!”

-Taylor // Wedding

Amanda is the perfect wedding photographer. She’s efficient, she gets absolutely all the shots you want and those you didn’t even know you want, and she just blended into our event perfectly. The photos perfectly captured the whole day and I feel like I can easily relive it just by looking back at the photos. I highly recommend Amanda.”

– Allison //  Wedding

“We used Amanda for our wedding and she is the BEST! Our photos turned out amazing and she captured the feel of our night perfectly. She’s also such a cool person and really fun to hang with 🙂 We didn’t want her to leave at the end of the night!”

– Beth // Wedding

“Amanda was everything and more than we could ask for! She was willing to go above and beyond when it came to taking picture that the bridal party insisted on getting. She had a great spirit throughout the whole day even with the unexpected weather turning for the worse. I would recommended to her any bride that is looking for a responsible, accountable, and fun photographer on her special day!

YES! I travel for at least half of my weddings and elopements every year! All quotes include travel because I love it so much. I’ve captured weddings in Telluride, Crested Butte, Glenwood Springs, Ouray, Moab and beyond! Please take me with you lol.


I am lucky to live in Grand Junction, Colorado! We’re blessed with incredible locations to photograph right in our backyard, but also just a short trip into the Rocky Mountains or over to the desert of Moab!


Yes! I cull through all the images and retouch them to my style (I like to call it vibrant and timeless!) and deliver the final images in an online gallery. 


Fill out my contact form below and I'll send over my specific pricing guide for the services you're interested in. From there we'll meet by phone/Zoom to make sure we're a good fit! Once you know I'm the one for you, I'll send over an invoice and agreement by email to save your date.

how do we book you?

Friendly and AFFIRMING! I firmly and will forever support and celebrate all marriages. I've helped lovers document their love before it was even legal federally and will always be on your side.


I started Amanda Matilda Photography in 2012! Before that I second shot under some pros to get a better understanding of what went into documenting weddings.



Engagement sessions are a great chance for us to get comfortable together and for you to get used to being in front of the camera! That way you’re not awkward or unsure on your wedding day; you know exactly what to expect and all that prep work comes flooding back. Plus they’re just pretty fun! We could go to a coffee shop, hike a trail, or build a bonfire and roast marshmallows. The possibilities are endless! If you would prefer not to use this session that's totally fine. You can add an hour onto your coverage or simply take a discount.


frequently asked questions

I will work with you through the wedding planning process to get a list of family members you want in your family formals. From there I will help by creating the perfect workflow list of groupings, and get your final approval and edits on that list! This really helps take the stress off you – I don’t want to give you one more thing for your to-do list when I could easily create the list based on my hundreds of weddings worth of experience! For portraits, if there are specific poses you want I’m happy to see your inspiration, but I don’t work off of a set shot list for that part of the day since I want you to be focused on the experience of the day and will guide you through prompts to help you look your best!

states I've visited

I believe there’s no better sight than the night sky at 10,000 feet.

I also believe you should be able to be authentically you on your wedding day. Whether that’s an off-beat elopement or more traditional wedding celebration, I strive to capture each genuine moment.

I strive to capture the day as it unfolds, every candid moment to perfectly preserve your story. I’m a fly on the wall and many guests say they never noticed me! However I’m not afraid to step up and make family formals fly by (people need to know where to stand and what to do with their hands!) I’m a happy medium between posed and candid.

I specialize in drinking chai tea lattes, and watching Gilmore Girls reruns! I also specialize in capturing the story & scenery of your celebration.

As a full service wedding photographer in Grand Junction, my mission is to preserve your favorite moments in beautiful images for you to relive those best moments of life that fly by too fast.

I’m originally from Iowa, and love meeting people with the same connection – it’s a small world!

There is no better sight than a clear night sky at 10,000 feet

One of my bucket list goals is to visit every state, and I’m over halfway there!

My first word was cheese and I’m still an addict to this day

I’m always thrilled to serve LGBTQ+ celebrations!

If I could only visit one other country in my life, it would be Greece

When I find out jeeps or ATVs are needed to get to your session destination I do a happy dance!

I’m totally a crazy cat lady.

Yes, I have seen the entire Gilmore Girls series (and the new ones!) multiple times, and yes, I’d love to talk about that ending with you!
